[ applause ] >> the american people don't expect government to solve every problem. they don't expect those of us in this chamber to agree on every issue, but they do expect us to put the nation's interests before party. [ applause ] >> they do expect us to forge reasonable compromise where we can, for they know that america moves forward only when we do so together, and that the responsibility of improving this union remains the task of us all. our work must begin by making some basic decisions about our budget decisions that will have a huge impact on the strength of our recovery. over the last few years both parties have worked together to reduce the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion, mostly through spending cuts, but also raising taxes on the wealthiest 1% of americans. as a result, we are more than halfway toward the goal of $4 trillion in def

have to take the government's word for it. you will be held without a trial until the end of hostility. when is the end of hostilities? no one knows. there is no end to the hostilities, and if they can prove your part of al-qaeda, great, take them to court, bring them to oh justice. if they can't they detain you indefinitely, and you just have to take the government's word. some people are not happy about this. chris hedges, award winning reporter is one of them, so he sued along with others, and his lawyer is bruce afran. wednesday, they went to court. here's what afran had to say. >> what our case comes down to is are we going to have a simple justice system in the united states or a military justice system. the civil justice system is ingrained in the constitution, battling tyranny and creating a democratic society. what they are trying to impose is a system of military justice that allows the military to police the streets of america. cenk: those are strong words but if you're interested in strong words here comes chris hedges the lead plaintiff in the case, senior fellow at the na

to get it done. they're all afraid of the government having a big list of gun owners. you know who has a big list of gun owners? the n.r.a. for a nickel a name, they'll sell it to you. stephanie: indicate obe chain. >> marco rubio scares the left more than just about anybody out there. instead of talking about that really intense moment when rubio was able to identify with the american people and say look, i don't live next to mill ayres i live in the same neighborhood i grew up in, i just paid off over $100,000 in student loans a few months ago that is the raft thing the leftists and mainstream media want the american people to be talking about, so they pick out something stupid like a drink of water. >> speaking of stupid, look in the mirror. stephanie: isn't his house worth $700,000, he wants to sell it to get out of that neighborhood. >> it's not the left that is afraid of more brown people coming to this country. stephanie: right. >> ok? if anything, it's the left that wants more brown people to be accepted and integrated into our society regardless of affiliation. we're actually
us what watergate really is. >> the choice isn't just between big government and big business. >> michael: ladies and gentlemen, it's go time. [ ♪ music ♪ ] >> michael: well, it appears that the crazy last week and a half that southern california area has endured over the disappearance and the hiding and murderous rampage of chris dorner has finally come to an end. it didn't come to an end without a big fire, more gunshots, and of course the death of another deputy. a riverside county deputy sheriff was killed yesterday by dorner as he went down in a blaze of bullets. >> after an all--day standout filled with shootouts and drama it ended overnight in a blazing inferno. it all started shortly after noon when a maid called 911 when she said she and another worker had been held tied up, remarkably just a few yards where from where police had been olding press briefings for a week. >> d oh orner killed one and wounds another before fleeing. less than an hour later residents report the sounds of gunfire at a nearby cabin. by 2:00 p.m. smoke is coming out of the building and the

has me every time he uses the hard and necessary work of self government. that line just plays me. i was very taken by the refrain of essentially telling congress to do its job look, vote on this stuff. i that the to was very compelling. i thought it was a message that was aimed less at the congress than the people out there pointing out saying hey you guys out there may not agree with me, but let's debate, let's vote on these things. >> did you sense this was a different president obama than we would have seen in say his third state of the union? i'm just picking one of his four out of the hat. do you find it a little different than the president we've seen before congress? >> yeah, i think that the campaign was a real revelation to him as to the complete lack of commitment by the republican party to any concept of a safety net at all, and more to the point a complete add vocation of the republican party to be a responsible opposition party. i honestly think before the presidential campaign, he still had in the back of his mind that he was going to be able to find enough reasonable
't in the government. it's abstored begin with on that note. again, i look for what's their real motivation, now, one thing which is what they say then there's a second thing, what they're waiting for some sort of problem for hagel. why do they not like hagel in the first place. is there main complaint we are not sure this guy is going to push the button and go to war with iran? is that the issue. >> senator mccain did an interview with fox news channel after the vote and pointed out that senator hagel in 2008, when barack obama was facing him in the nomination gave him cover in a sense, that he was out on this foreign trip with him sort of passively supporting his candidacy. mccain didn't go so far as to say this, but he pointed out thatten obsign iraq and that campaign, that he wasn't on our side. the other point is senator graham was right quite frank on this, we know hagel has nothing to do with benghazi, but this is the only leverage we have, this is the way the game is played. we're trying to leverage this situation to get more questions acknowledged about benghazi from the white house as the w
and under utilized capacity the last thing that the government wants to do is raise taxes on the middle class or cut spending in any way because that's going to reduce demand. what you need right now because so many people are worried about their jobs and can't get loans what you need to do is you got to increase demand, not reduce demand. >> john: well, the g.o.p. senators are said to be preparing a confrontation of their own, a balanced budget to be released thursday that would cap spending of gdp and require the super majority to raise taxes and increase the debt limit. i don't want to think about what that would do to the economy if allowed to pass. what is the point of this posturing? are they stone walling more trying to do nothing in hopes that a stagnant economy would further hurt the democratic party? >> they're trying to do more than that. they're trying to make the public believe a big lie. that lie is that the reason the economic recovery is so slow, the reason why unemployment continues to be very high is the budget deficit. that lie is told over and over and over again by
saying the government can't create jobs and by the way, president, where are the jobs. stephanie: the president is not offering a ladder. you take the lower rung away. >> put in an escalator or elevator to get to the ladder. john: this guy, president obama in late 2011 put forth a jobs bill that was 60% tax cuts and they still killed it. they don't believe in anything they say. stephanie: yep. barbara in d.c., you're on with john. caller: hi. john: good morning. caller: i'm switching subjects a little bit. i'm getting torqued about the sequester. it amazing me that the republicans want to take the economy back into recession so, you know, if we go into the quester, here's my suggestion, we start with the republican congress. we lay off or furlough 20% of congress immediately. we will save money and we will be able to get the bills passed. stephanie: yeah. yeah. caller: i would start with. caller: nhot, mccain, gram, cruise from texas myrtle the turtle. paul ryan, we could get a lot of stuff done. stephanie: it is amazing john how we said it's clear they both voted for it, both si
for governing. >> the american people don't expect government to solve every problem. they don't expect those of us in this chamber to agree on every issue. but they do expect us to put the nation's interests before party. >> bill: the in case's interests before party. i noticed even john boehner applauded that particular line. then the president said what this is all about -- and his entire speech last night really was about the economy, about jobs, and how you get this economy going. the president said it many many, many times in the past. he repeated it last night. you don't grow the economy from the top, down. you grow the economy from the middle class, out. president obama, everything he said last night was how to build and strengthen america's middle class. >> it is our generation's task, then, to reignite the true engine of america's economic growth, a rising thriving middle class. [applause.] >> bill: and the president, so he talked about doing that in many, many different ways. he talked about doing it by creating new jobs by getting rid of the tax
's so silly the economy is falling apart and here they are talking about how we don't need government. but actually in 2010 that turned out to be a pretty good message. i think marco rubio gives a much better speech than bobby jindal. he really is a charismatic guy. he's only introduced himself to the american people at the republican convention when he had the bad luck to come after clint eastwood when no one was paying attention as everyone is trying to find the youtube and transcript of that insane speech. this is an opportunity for him. >> michael: you bring up presidential ambitions that bobby jindal may have. it seems to me that jeb bush is the only thing standing in the way of marco rubio right now and i don't care if people don't like 2016 prediction talk. and people who say they don't also like it by the way. it seems that jeb bush is the only thing standing in the way of marco rubio, is that accurate? >> that's hard to say. jeb bush is his political mentor. i told this interesting story in my article that people sort of assume that he wouldn't run if jeb is in. i asked him s
billion in automatic cuts. the continuing resolution that funds the government expires on march 27th so march is going to be an incredibly busy month anyway. you had immigration gun control and now to put on top of that, a minimum wage increase and universal preschool that's an awl big load for any congress to carry, especially one that's split between the parties. >> bill: the president also talked about jobs and particularly getting jobs started in the manufacturing sector in various ways by these manufacturing hubs he called them by getting rid of tax breaks for taking jobs overseas and giving tax advantages to people who are bringing jobs back into this country. >> some of that stuff he can do on his own. >> bill: i was going to ask you that. >> he already has the money for it. some of that stuff can be called from the current stimulus program. money still being spent off of that. >> bill: so he did at one point, he used that phrase in the speech. i forget exactly what program he was talking about. maybe climate change. if you don't do it, i will. defiant. >> climate change, he ment
will not leave our president governed. i just wanted to say to somebody why don't -- mccain and lindsey graham just go on an island somewhere or -- >> stephanie: like gilligan and the captain? >> the island of misfit toys. >> stephanie: lindsey graham and leon panetta on a sunday show. >> this is from the hearing. >> are you are surprised the president never called you secretary panetta and said how is it going? >> normally, in these situations -- did he know the level of threat -- >> let me finish the answer. we were deploying the forces. he knew we were deploying the forces. he was being kept -- >> i hate to interrupt you but i got limited time. we didn't deploy any forces. >> why is he asking questions if he doesn't want to hear the answer? >> stephanie: lindsey graham. >> chance for him to pontificate. >> if i were a family member and one of my loved ones was killed in benghazi, i would be sick to my stomach. >> stephanie: i would certainly get to the bottom of who cut the funding for security -- oh, it was me. >> oops. >> stephanie: this was the fit we talked about earlier. >> play it aga
to confiscation it would be like big pharma arguing that because the government controls the sale of some pain killers they're called opiates they'll come in and take my aspirin. stephanie: this is what the gun nuts always do, the slippery hitler water slide. exactly. january, you're on the "stephanie miller show." hi january from chicago. caller: i just wanted to give you a fact check. love you guys. stephanie: thank you. caller: you can look at any goose cast last night on the major networks regarding chicago, and the gun control. stephanie: right. caller: and mayor emanuel and police commissioner jerry mccarthy were talking about that, that we do have really lax, really lax gun control here and they had photos of people who were up on charges recently for illegal gun possession and were given probation came out and three of them committed murder. so they want some automatic minimum sentencing for anyone with illegal guns. >> if you listen to the far right, you'd think that there's a strong gun regulation in chicago. caller: right, yeah, that's what -- honestly, that's what had gary mccarthy
protection for gays and lesbians who work for the government, make sure they're not fired because of their sexual orientation and gender identity because congress isn't going to take up that kind of bill. so what is he going to say about what he can do through administrative action, through executive order? and then, of course, you have the big issues. big issues he laid out at the inaugural. climate change. is he going to add details to the call to action? what is he going to do about jobs? are we going to see a jobs plan? how much is he going to talk about the deficit which of course, would be playing into this republican framework that we need more cuts in spending, more cuts in spending. so a lot to look forward to. >> bill: immigration. >> immigration. of course, immigration. now the argument -- >> bill: and gun safety. >> the argument on immigration i think thankfully has shifted from the inaugural. it is no longer should we do immigration. do we include a path to citizenship or not. gun safety a universal background checks, there seems to be some bipartisan agreement on tha
for the libyan government that obama himself called the next day to ask for help with the investigation and the rest of it. graham is up for re-election in 2014, and he has been successful pressing the bengahzi story for as much as possible. again that's what his interest and concern is. he wants to go back to home state voters and say i stuck it to the president on this. i consider it to be as bad as watergate, and so he has no incentive whatsoever to stop doing that until the very last minute. that hasn't approached yet. >> michael: now, it's worth pointing out not only is graham up for re-election but it looks like he's going to get a primary as well. to see as right of the president as he possibly can seems like a good path for him to take. let's go to the president. what does this bode for the president's second term if he has this much trouble getting his nominees past of the democratic senate. >> it's funny you ask this. this all is playing out the same week that the president gave his state of the union dress to which he laid out a very ambitious liberal laundry list of things h
that looks out for people, any kind of specificity is what we ought to do as a national government when we know that individual communities face individual problems. >> i don't know. seems like a political suicide to me. >> one thing that's really interesting right now, on the violence against women act is, senator jim demint who left congress at the end of this past year, he went over and now he is leading the heritage foundation. >> yes. >> the very conservative think tank group. they are actually vote checking on the violence against women act meaning, they are encouraging people not to vote for it. >> wow. >> they are going to mark it on their record if they do. >> on their scorecard. >> jim demint's first move at the heritage foundation. >> my pre-dix was he was going to destroy the reputation of the heritage foundation. sounds like et cetera well on his way to do so. jen bendery, we have a briefing today at the whitehouse jen bendery covers the house for huffington post. we will be back with jamal simmons and the rest of the news of the day. this is th
